    takin my gf shooting for the first real time. been with her 4 years, and she comes with me occasionally, but mostly just watches.

    We're takin out a couple .22s for plinkin fun, and need some cool, fun target ideas. Ya' know, just to make sure she has fun. can't have anything that explodes. Post up your cool target ideas[​IMG]

    I'm sure other people could get some ideas outta this thread too.

    there are those little stickers that are black but are neon underneath, they help you see your hits easier

    those and maybe some reactive targets? :dunno:

    You can usually get rabbits pretty cheap at the petstore. Birds if you have a shotgun.

    we had a man shaped target that had the areas you hit labeled with the organs or muscles they corresponded too.

    those targets hes talking about above are cool too though.

    I took a cardboard box from UHAUL, and some old timber we had laying around, and built a decent little target..

    Can't find a picture of it though :o

    i would love to find a mannequin. you could start out just putting stuff on it like film canisters in their hands and shoot those, and then when you have nothing else left, you can just shoot the mannequin

    Never tried those.. I had a friend who actually had some tannerite, and my g/f wanted to go shooting with us..

    He put it behind some paper targets at ~50 yards, and I think she came close to wetting herself.. she shot & then screamed as it blew :rofl:

    but seriously, shaken up cans of soda do pretty good. mostly depends on what the person's into. 12ga empties make pretty good targets on a 2x4 at a distance

    thanks guys. another one that i heard today was raquet balls on strings. poke a hole through a raquet ball and tie it to a string. use a tent stake to stake the string to the ground. when you shoot the ball, it bounces around but stays in the same general area.
